Eccentric Penguin Productions, Auditions for Neil Simon’s Rumours
Eccentric Penguin Productions, a relatively new drama group, who perform in Tutbury Village Hall, are holding auditions for their fourth Summer play. Eccentric Penguin is made up of a group of friends, who have got together to do what they love the most. They are looking for new members who enjoy acting or fancy giving it a go.
Our audition process is very informal, involving having a read through of play, as a group, with everyone reading different parts. From this the Director, will select a cast.
Eccentric Penguin’s Summer 2017 play will be ‘Rumours’ by Neil Simon, an American playwright famous for such plays as The Odd Couple, Biloxi Blues, and Brighton Beach Memoirs. ‘Rumours’ is the first Farce he as written, which he has adapted for a British setting.
‘Four couples have been invited to the Wedding anniversary of Charley, a prominent Government official, and his wife, Vivian. Charley has shot himself in the ear, and his wife is no where to be found. What follows is a hysterical farce as the couples attempt to protect Charley and themselves from scandal and the police.’
